Revitalizing Libraries / Speed Dating

Not that I want to be dating again, but I wish they had this when I was! Or even platonic versions for people who just moved to North Carolina and don't know anyone yet...

Libraries have suffered a lot from the GoogleWikipediaAmazon boom. This builds upon a core strength that, LibraryThing aside, you can't get online: Face to Face Communications With Other People Like You About Books You Love. Libraries have also lost out on this Face to Face with the budget cutbacks so many of them have faced-- there simply isn't staff time to "waste" chatting with patrons about books.
